where was I? oh yes! being young. . .
. . .when I was young I used to try and draw pools of water with leaves floating on the top and fish swimming down below - not in black and white, like Escher. . . and not as reflective as Monet
(I suppose I wanted the water to be more transparent) (altho - let's face it, I'd have been very happy with a result to either of those standards) (yes, it's alright to laugh now. . .)
I never managed it: perhaps I'll try again sometime!
